Your Perks: 1) Speakers and headphones made from walnut, which is infinitely sexier than white plastic. 2) Particularly sultry underthings for special occasions. Or maybe the occasion becomes special because of these. 3) Vintage bags and scarves by Louis Vuitton. We have a feeling this Louis guy is going to make it.
Things to do for February 03, 2016
First, a New Ice Bar. Then, a Different Kind of Super Bowl Party.
The weekend always goes for two.
Valentine’s Day Starts Here
Gifting your special someone chocolate on Valentine’s Day: potentially cliché. Gifting your special someone legendarily delicious macarons and homemade French tarts from the new location of Vanille: substantially less cliché. Mostly because neither of those items comes in heart shapes.
Winter Can Be Rough. So Here’s an Ice Bar.
Ladies and gentlemen, the prosecution would have you believe Chicago’s winter is “a drag.” Yes, it’s cold. And yes, slush happens. But this Friday is the launch party for Vertigo Sky Lounge’s annual ice bar. They’ll have a hot toddy menu. Assorted furs. S’mores stations. S’mores stations. The defense rests.
Music. Art. Food. Scents. Yes, Scents.
Friday’s just a typical night at the MCA. Live music and a DJ set from How to Dress Well. Few mojo pork shoulder sandwiches. Curated rejuvenation playlists accompanied by scents from a natural goods maker. That pop art design exhibit. We’re not really sure whether or not we’re being sarcastic.
Rag & Bone’s Got a Sale. Maybe Go There.
You may or may not have made it to New York Fashion Week: Men’s this week. No worries either way. Just head to Rag & Bone, where you can grab a handful of their minimalist tees, jackets and cashmere sweaters for up to 50% off. Which is great because you’ll actually wear this stuff.
This Super Bowl Party’s Not Like the Rest
On Super Bowl Sunday, the Whistler transforms into a sports bar, complete with a giant projection screen for the game, many splendid libations and a postgame rock concert. Hey, they couldn’t stay a sports bar forever.
